Lotika Paintal


Personable and dedicated, Lotika loves working with clients on their Real Estate needs. Lotika is very thorough and well informed on all aspects of the real estate transaction, to give her clients the edge needed in today’s competitive market. She uses her negotiation skills on behalf of her clients and loves to celebrate their success in accomplishing what is often a very significant transaction of their life. 

Lotika lived in Lexington for nearly twenty years and Cambridge for three before moving to downtown Boston as an empty nester. Her own experience informs her deep understanding of the many facets of suburban vs urban life, schools, and commutes in the greater Boston area. 

Lotika is also certified as a Realtor in New Hampshire where she has a second home. This equips her uniquely to advise clients on the complex and emotional aspects of downsizing, upsizing and second home ownership.

She is fluent in English, French and Hindi and is particularly effective interacting with different cultures and backgrounds. Having lived, studied, and worked in France, Norway, Denmark, Canada, and India, she understands and appreciates the emotions and challenges of selling a home, relocating, and starting anew.

She has an MA, from Harvard University with an emphasis on International Development and Negotiation and another from Lesley University in Intercultural Relations. Her BSc is in Molecular Biology from the Sorbonne, France. 

Before Real Estate, Lotika worked for twenty years on poverty alleviation in the not-for-profit sector. She is passionate about addressing disparities, particularly the lack of access to water, sanitation, and hygiene education for vulnerable groups. She has worked tirelessly on this global crisis for many years and even started her own nonprofit Water Centric, to address it.

Lotika enjoys long bicycle rides in beautiful New England and has been riding in the Pan Mass Challenge– 192 Miles over two days – since 2008 to raise funds for cancer research for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. She is also a keen Duplicate Bridge player and sailor. Lotika has been a member of the International Rotary Club and has served on the board of the Lexington Education Foundation.

"We would definitely like to give Lotika a five star rating for her assistance in the purchase of our new home in Lexington, MA. From the day we were introduced, she was prompt, professional and extremely responsive to our queries. She is very knowledgeable and always willing to go the extra mile to help her clients. The purchase of a home is an overwhelming process, starting with searching for one. Thankfully with an agent like Lotika by our side, we felt very comfortable and taken care of. In spite of it being a competitive market she understood our needs and got us exactly the kind of house we needed. She helped us make good decisions and even after the purchase has connected us to a lot of resources so that we can settle down well. She is extremely professional and patient. Her greatest asset is an ever smiling face and willingness to help at all times. We as a family appreciate all her help and would strongly recommend her for all your real estate needs."

  -Victoria Garcia Drago, Client

"Lotika guided us expertly through our real estate search and purchase. As first time home buyers, we had no shortage of questions, concerns, and reservations as we worked through the process. Lotika had a perfect balance of warmth and understanding as she listened to and allayed our concerns, and strong negotiations to make sure we got the best possible value in our transaction. There were so many things that we would never have thought of without Lotika's practiced guidance, and I know our experience was second to none because of Lotika. Sincere thanks, J&P" "

  -J&P, Client

"Our experience working with Lotika was swift, sweet and successful. We reached out to her at a time when 1. we had to find a place in about two months 2. There was little to no inventory of houses in Wellesley to rent or buy 3. We couldn't choose a different town due to the school 4. Prices were high, and 5. Our budget wasn't very 'elastic'. She came in and efficiently assessed the situation and considered the constraints, calmed me with her voice of reason, shared with us her understanding of the market in our town, patiently heard all our concerns and answered hundreds of questions, until she led us to the home we ended up buying. Everything happened really fast, and she hung with us through it all. We are so grateful to have had her guidance for this process, and would definitely recommend her to others. "
